Van Gogh Sunflower Drawing

Van Gogh sunflowerOil pastels are a great medium for a Van Gogh sunflower drawing. This is a tribute to his famous “Sunflowers” painting.

 

MATERIALS
• Drawing paper
• Black permanent marker, fine tip
• Oil Pastels

DIRECTIONS
1. Students draw a line for the table, and then the outline of a jar above it. They can add a curved middle line for dimension, and sign their name, in the style of Van Gogh.
2. Students draw a series of circles for flowers, some large, some small, maybe some even going off the page. Add small petals around the flowers.
3. Connect the flowers to the jar by drawing stems, and add leaves.
4. Trace all the pencil lines with a medium size black marker.
5. Students fill in the shapes with oil pastels. If they color everything very solidly, their picture will look much like an oil painting. NOTE: In time, the marker lines will get fuzzy from the oil in these pastels. To avoid that from happening, take a photo of art when it is done, or swap the marker for a black oil pastel.
